    I'm just a 1 truck operation. I have a Arctic Cat 500 that I plow areas at my house that I can't fit my truck into. I also have an Allis-Chalmers 5050 tractor with a bucket loader that I use to push the banks back at my house on acasion.

    Where'd you get the penguins, been lookin for them.............

    They don't ever whine about the cold
    They work cheap
    and they're always dressed for business.............

    But I hear they're alot like laborers, you really have to keep an eye on them or they sled away down the nearest hill...........

    LOL, it's been a long week boys
